Renovation Progress at the Netherlands Centre in Helmond

About two months ago, the reconstruction of the Netherlands Centre started, and since then changes are moving fast. The wall, which separated the parking garage from the practice hall, was taken down and built up again to separate the first third of the practice hall. This makes the practice area rather small, but leaves room for the construction workers to do their job—no small task considering the plans to make a sleeping quarter with 172 beds, a fully equipped Chinese kitchen, showers and toilets, and a practice hall of 5,500 square feet. The reconstruction should be finished before the International Instructors Workshop in November.

In spite of the dust and noise of the renovation, all the Centre classes continue—even though this means the floor has to be cleaned every day. It all gives members a chance to practice working together in harmony, and everyone realizes they are very fortunate to do so. For a closer look, please check the latest updates on The Netherlands national website.

    Hallo, ik feliciteer de vereniging met het nieuwe gebouw.
    Ik denk dat ik welleens een workshhop van een paar dagen wil volgen in de toekomst.
    Ik zit wegens M.s echter in een rolstoel, en neem aan dat bij logeren daar dan rekening wordt gehouden?(aangepast toilet met beugels, ziekenhuisbed (lieftst alleen op een kamer want bij omdraaien stoor ik de andere persoon nogal!! Ik kreun ook veel) en ook aankleedhulp-mogelijkheden…..) Nou ja, een heel pakket van hulpvragen…
    Groeten Annette Oosterhuis
